For the oppressed in South Africa, freedom songs were a weapon in the struggle against colonial conquest and apartheid, and are part of the collective memory of the struggle against apartheid.
Freedom songs tell the story of the people, organizations, events, ideologies, beliefs, hopes, dreams and emotions that were part of the struggle for freedom.
Many singers and bands added their voices to the struggle through their music, and jazz, rock, reggae, hip hop and other musical genres played an important role in the struggle for freedom.

'China renamed Rosa – From childhood sold five times'

The life of China, called by at least three names and sold five times, illustrates how impossible it was for a slave to hold onto even the most basic unit of identity. China of Singaracolla was sold into slavery as a child.
Six years later, ‘China, renamed Rosa’ was sold for 18 pagados, to a VOC sailor, Hendrik Hillman. A month after this, now recorded as ‘Rosa’, she was sold at a 100 percent profit to a Dutch ship’s captain, Cornelius Bosch.
He set sail five months later on the Bovenkerker Polder bound for Cape Town and took her with him.
The final record of sale was in 1775, when China was 16 or 17; she was bought by the most senior clergyman of the Cape, Johannes Serrurier.

Had 1st ever encounter with my neighbour - a kung fu lover known as Golden Eagle who also happens to be a 6 year old girl. A shared moment of connection during a strange time, or so I thought…Golden Eagle, Crouching Weasel: Lockdown encounters with a 6 year old Ninja - a thread
It begins: Met my neighbour at the end of the garden, a small girl who introduced herself as 'a ninja'. She can do Kung Fu. I confessed I too am a ninja & we took a moment to exchange balances. Having won her trust, she revealed her ninja name: Golden Eagle & asked me mine
I told her. She disappeared. l continued to hang out the washing, as the last pillowcase was hung & I turned to head inside - she made me jump by leaping up from behind the wall, shouting
'I can do camouflage too. See you later Crouching Weasel'. An unlikely friendship is born

Even if 1% of population gets infected & we have as much as CFR as in #southkorea, our efforts are averting between 0.5-2.3 million deaths. In terms of mitigation, we are the first country in the world to do a #Lockdown21 on a national scale #covidinindia #LockdownLessons 1ofn ImageImageImageImage
How to move forward? First, some ground realities
1. Testing everyone is going to take time.
2. Treatment is going to available only later.
3. Vaccine development is far

Next, once lockdown is lifted, most of India is susceptible to new infections.
How to stop future infections?

If there are active transmissions going on, it will spread like wildfire later. So catch these foci of transmission and contain them to these local areas.

So, the focus is NOT on the states/areas that are detecting, testing and controlling well.
